800,000 thousand a year growth is incredible Phoenix is one of the USA's fastest growing cities and only adds about 100,000 a year

so how many total high rises total does the city have ?
Emporis only has 275 of them listed but I know it must be more then that someone should go and add these new buildings to the list

the growth for the chongqing urban area is apparently about 800,000. what is certain is that chongqing is in terms of percentage growth the fastest growing major city in china, and in terms of total population grwoth the fastest growing city in the world although some smaller cities have faster percentage growth elsewhere. the united nations population people record the growth rates btw guys

Very impressive.

Chongqing is slated to be amongst China's super megalopolis regions. That's why the government seperated it into it's own municipal district and cut it out of Sichuan province.

Chongqing is planned to become the economic and industrial capital of Western China.

Emporis lies, there are probably more than 1000 building that should be there!

If this is built, I would have to see it in person!! My jaw dropped and hit the floor! It would take over 'coolest hotel' from Burj-Al-Arab

One of the really nice things about Chongqing are the many little stepped alleyways. They give the city a really nice character. Are these in danger of being demolished? Has the government got any plans to try and preserve them?

These projects look excellent. China's masterplanning madness is simply beautiful in such places like Chongqing. They are preserving the mountain's greenspace while adding an amazing living environment.

I do have a question. Are there any plans to clean up the river? Based on the aeriel photo, the river looks horribly polluted. Correct me if I'm wrong, and it is just the silt or something. But, if they want to have sailboats and waterfront highrises like the renderings and models, there needs to be some sort of program in place to cleanup the river to usable status.

Otherwise, impressive projects. I'm really glad China sticks to its masterplanning madness without too much deviation!

I like ChongQing's plans,
but immediate action must be taken to tackle the air pollution and associated impact on the climate,
it is now over 40oC and unsuitable for living.

I agree with your idea. IMHO, planners of Chongqing should save more space for trees and lawn, which we often see in Shenzhen, Shanghai, and Beijing. The CBDs are way too dense. So many heat from air condition exhaust has made the streets even hotter.

You seem not understand what Userdemos said.He praised that Chongqing's materplanners were preserving so many green spaces.

Well,about CBD,I think Chongqing's materplanner would rather build a compact and walking friendly CBD than a tacky park coupled with several skyscrapers.It doesn't mean we don't build parks,on the contrary,like Userdemos said,we are preserving huge amount of green spaces outside CBD.

The Jialing river is very clean and beautiful



The ugly one is Yangzte river.When the Three gorges dam totally completed,the water will rise.I hope it will make the Yangzte river better looking.

The temperature break the record of history several days ago.

Fortunately,the air conditionner's very common used,and the people could go up to the mountains around the city,since the temperature in the mountains is below 30C all around the year.Unlike other Chinese cities,Chongqing's got several national forest parks.Now,it's very hot in most Chinese cities,but we are better since we have the green and cool mountains. Infact in recent days,the hotels on the mountains around Chongqing were even over crowded.

It forecasted that it would finally rain three days later.

Yes,on the peninsula there's an area full of old buildings and stepped alleyways.The govt plans to renovate those old buildings and the stepped alleyways.

They are like flash of Old Chongqing,I miss it in deed.
